This lightweight, limited edition beach towel features Kehinde Wiley’s 2010 painting Femme Piquée Par Un Serpent Study III, reimagined from Auguste Clésinger’s 1847 sculpture of the same name. Wiley’s model lays sensually on a table of linen cloth, wearing blue jeans, an orange hoodie, and a gold chain. With his head tilted towards the viewer and underwear exposed, the powerlessness of being off one's feet is addressed as an erotic moment.

Established in 2019, Black Rock Senegal is a multidisciplinary artist-in-residence program founded by Kehinde Wiley in Dakar, Senegal. The program brings together international artists to live and work at Wiley’s coastal compound for 1-3 month residencies. Designed by Senegalese architect Abib Djenne, the complex includes a residence and studio space for Wiley along with 3 single-occupancy residency apartments with adjacent studio spaces. Our mission is to support new artistic creation through collaborative exchange and to incite change in the global discourse about Africa.
